    I love watching tv & I always have, but I’m really getting to the point where if I see (especially!!!) Big Brother & some of the other so-called “reality” shows, I schedule an hour of reading or walking…ANYTHING but those shows! I have enough problems in my life, I don’t want to watch those people play games! Frankly I do think that a lot of the reality shows are really NOT the kind of shows people who enjoy tv & who are loyal to it, enjoy anymore. The dancing & singing shows are different but Big Brother really doesn’t to have a lot of redeeming value. That’s just my opinion.
